'The only regret I have in life is that I wasn’t allowed to marry the man of my choice' – Patience Ozokwor












Veteran Nollywood actress, Patience Ozokwor in a new interview has opened up on the only regret she has in life, how her kids prevented her from getting married again and the role her mum played in her first marriage.

See excerpts from her interview with Punchng below...
Since the death of your husband, have you ever considered remarrying?
Yes. There was a time I wanted to remarry but my children said no. They are all grown now. They said if they were young, they wouldn’t have objected. Now that they are grown, they say they will be my husband and they have been trying. The only thing they don’t do is go to bed with me (laughs). They said that their friends would laugh at them that their mother abandoned them, but I didn’t see it that way. It really brought problems. I wanted to remarry but my sister and other relations came and said that I should concede to them and I accepted but with the condition that they would also listen to me anytime I tell them to stop being friends with any of their friends that I don’t like and they agreed. So we have been managing one another.
Do you have any regrets in life?
The only regret I have in life is that I wasn’t allowed to marry the man of my choice. That is it but I was able to cope. I had suitors, I was going to choose one among them but my parents said that I would marry their choice. If they had allowed me, I would have loved to make my choice.
You got married early in life following your parents’ bidding. Was it that you were betrothed to him?
No, I wasn’t betrothed to him, but my mother was a kind of woman that always liked to punish any child that misbehaved publicly. You know all those Christian mothers that would be in the disciplinary section to punish children. So, she didn’t want her child to come out of secondary school and not get married because she was afraid you could bring her to where she had been punishing people. So she insisted I must get married. I said okay but I had a suitor. But she said no. I didn’t know what to do because I had put all my eggs in one basket; he was in the University of Nigeria, Nsukka. I was waiting to go to school so that I would marry him but my mother wouldn’t wait. So I had to obey her. There was a big fight but in our days, you would not be the one to say I will marry this person; it was your parents that would have the final say in your marriage, so I had to give up.
How would you describe your childhood? Were you stubborn?
I was not stubborn and I was not quiet. It was all play, play, play. But I was loved by so many people around.
At the time you ventured into acting, what were your parents’ reactions?
Only my father was still around and he was excited seeing me in a movie. Like my husband too, he would say (to our children), come and play your mother’s film for us to watch. They enjoy my movies. My immediate younger brother, who is in the US, will say that I have found my talent and that is why it has swallowed me.
If you were not an actor, what else would you have been in life?
I would be cooking. I still cook till today.

'She seduced me' - Lesson teacher who defiled 13-year-old pupil tells Lagos court











The Lagos State police command have arrested a 30-year-old teacher, Charles Munroe, for allegedly defiling a Senior Secondary School one pupil he was teaching.

Although Munroe admitted to having sex with the 13-year-old girl, he claimed it was consensual and that the victim seduced him. According to reports, the girl’s mother had employed Munroe sometime in August 2018 to be teaching her daughter in their residence at Ajangbadi area of the state.  

Munroe was said to have gone to the girl’s school on January 16, 2019 and asked her to follow him to his house on the pretence that he wanted to show her something. On getting to the house, the teacher reportedly had sex with her forcefully and threatened to kill her if she disclosed what happened to her parents.  

About one month later, on February 19, Munroe repeated the act after he allegedly lured the girl out of the class on the pretext that he wanted to give her a textbook. It was learnt that the girl’s mother observed that she was nervous, prompting the woman to prod her into telling the truth. She was said to have opened up to her mother after much pestering.  
The case was consequently reported at the Okokomaiko Police Division and the teacher was arrested. The girl told the police that she followed Munroe home based on the trust she had in him, adding that she never thought he could molest her.  
She said, “Mr. Munroe teaches my mum’s friend’s children. Through my mum’s friend, she started giving me private lessons in August 2018. In January this year, he visited me in the school and asked me if I had a boyfriend. I told him I did not have. He came the second time and told me he wanted to be my boyfriend. I told him I was not interested.
“On January 16, he came to my school again and asked me to follow him home to see something. Being my lesson teacher, I agreed to follow him. I never thought he could think of having sex with me. I wanted to shout, but he covered my mouth. When he was done, he threatened to kill me if I told my parents about it. I was scared and didn’t tell them.  
“On the second occasion, he came to my school and told me that there was a textbook he wanted me to read. He took me to a place and asked me to remove my clothes. When I refused, he forcefully had sex with me.”  
But Munroe, who hails from Abia State, claimed that the sex was consensual. The teacher stated that he and the girl had become close over time during which she allegedly made amorous advances to him. He said he rejected the overtures and that it led to a disagreement, adding that he later succumbed to “let peace reign.”  
Munroe stated, “I am a graduate and I have been teaching for some years now. I was engaged to give private lessons to the girl at home. We both became close in the process and she shared her burdens with me. In all honesty, she told me she was 15 years old.  On February 19, she visited me as she normally did. She had wanted me to be with her even when I resisted.  
“At a point, my refusal caused a serious disagreement between us. I succumbed to her advances to let peace reign. We had sex based on her consent. I never knew before now that she was still a child under the law and was not capable of giving consent. The first one took place in my house. I asked her several times if she had a boyfriend just to discourage her from being close to me.”  
A police prosecutor, Inspector Ben Emuerhi, subsequently brought Munroe before an Ikeja Magistrates’ Court sitting in Ogba on one count of defilement. The charge read, “That you, Charles Munroe, between January 16, 2019 and February 19, 2019 at Ajangbadi, Lagos, in the Lagos Magisterial District, did unlawfully defile a 13-year-old girl, thereby committing an offence punishable under Section 137 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2015.”  

The presiding magistrate, Mrs O. Sule-Hamzat, did not take the teacher’s plea. She granted a remand application filed by the police, asking that the defendant be kept in the Kirikiri prison. The magistrate directed that a copy of the case file be sent to the Directorate of the Public Prosecutions for legal advice and adjourned the matter till May 2, 2019.
